Foundation Repair Photo Album: Cracking in Foundation Wall, Manchester, NH
This homeowner in Manchester, New Hampshire, has lived in their home for the past 31 years. They have seen some cracks form on the foundation wall that have gotten larger over the years. They have become concerned about the foundation wall and decided to call EFS for a free inspection of their home. Our Design Specialist Victor Tapia met with the homeowners and performed a full inspection of the interior and exterior of the foundation. The results of the inspection were that one corner of the foundation was settling and that is what had caused After Victor's inspection was completed he recommended installing 5 Helical Piers around the corner of the foundation where the foundation wall was cracked.
Our Installation Team led by Edward N. began by exposing the foundation wall of the home. The team dug down to the footing of the foundation so we could start installing our Helical Piers and attach them to the footing of the foundation. Once the Helical Piers were pushed the team then slipped our bracket over the piers and then secured the bracket to the footing of the foundation. After all 5 of the piers were secured and the foundation was stabilized, we then began to seal the foundation cracks with Crack Injection. After the cracks were sealed the team backfilled the dirt back to its original position.
